Jarvis Jones, a former NFL linebacker and presently a member of the Georgia football staff, was arrested for reckless driving on his way to the Bulldogs’ season opener.
Jarvis Jones Arrested For Reckless Driving And Speeding-Maximum Limits
33-year-old, Jarvis Jones, a player coordinator for the Bulldogs was arrested late Friday night in Athens, Georgia, for speeding and reckless driving, Yahoo!Sports reported.
Jarvis Jones was facing charges of reckless driving and speeding-maximum limits. Moreover, Jarvis Jones was booked into Clarke County Jail, Athens-Clarke County Police jail records said.
Furthermore, Jarvis Jones was released early Saturday morning on a $2,400 bond about an hour later.
This arrest was Jones’ latest driving investigation after the two-time reigning national champions, who have struggled to deal with the issue since a high-speed crash killed offensive lineman Devin Willock and recruiting staffer Chandler LeCroy on January 15, just hours after a celebratory parade through Athens.
The crash happened roughly 12 hours after the school held a championship celebration at Sanford Stadium celebrating Georgia’s 65-7 victory over TCU in the national title game on January 9.
The Tribe Live reported that Jarvis Jones was known for playing at Georgia from 2010-12 under former coach Mark Richt, setting school records for sacks in a season (14 1/2) and tackles for loss (24 1/2) that still stand.
After being selected number 17 overall in the NFL Draft, Jones spent the 2013-16 seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Jarvis Jones retired in 2017 after a short stint with the Arizona Cardinals.
